The grass in my orchard is starting to worry me; I
read that some grasses are alleopathic, particularly
the nasty creeping ones.  How worried should I really
be?  How much space around each tree do I need to 
keep clear?  Any good suggestions, other than roundup,

to control?  I've been starting with cardboard but 
it's about 1/4 acre - that's a lot of cardboard...
